Fault in Our Stars by John Green – Book Review

Hello All!!

I am here with my first book review for the month of July.

Yesterday I posted my TBR pile and you might already know, what I am planning to read this month. I am very happy that, I was able to finish reading one book already.

Here is my review;

11870085

Hardcover, 313 pages
Published January 10th 2012 by Dutton Books

Synopsis

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.Β 

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love. (from Goodreads)

My Review

  1. After reading Looking For Alaska,Β I totally fell in love with the writing style of John Green and this is my second book from the author. Actually I was looking forward to reading this one, and finally I did.
  2. The whole story is about fighting against Cancer and how cancer patients face the reality of their lives.
  3. The female protagonist of the story, Hazel, a sixteen year old girl who is plain and simple and fights cancer and brain tumor, asΒ  a result of a medical miracle.
  4. Hazel meets young, seventeen year old, cute and hot Augustus Waters at the support group session.
  5. Meeting Augusts or Gus, totally changes the life of Hazel and simply can be put as, her life is being re- written. She experiences love and affection from Gus. Together they face the reality of their lives.
  6. The characters are well constructed and all the supporting characters were amazing too.
  7. Powerful yet simple and deeper story line, that talks about a bitter truth about some of the unfortunate people in our society.
  8. Death of Augustus really wrenched my heart, and it honestly made me cry 😦
  9. Story is filled with love, humor and finally heart-break. (but totally worth reading and facing the heart-break)
  10. No matter what life offers you, living your life to the fullest is the best therapy. This is what I learnt from the story. There might be so many barriers but don’t forget love finds its way.
  11. I was emotionally touched after reading the book and would recommend it to anyone, who love books by John Green.
